I applied and was accepted to Loyola, Kent, DePaul and John Marshall. I plan on attending Loyola, but I was wondering if I could realistically try and squeeze some more money out of them. Loyola offered a $16,000 per year scholarship, but DePaul offered 18 a year, Kent 20 a year and John Marshall a full ride. I recently found out about leveraging scholarships to get better offers, so I'm going to give it a shot. I was just wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience with these schools? Thanks for any info.

At least within my circle of friends, this isn't true. I'd be wary of making such broad generalizations.

I've been very successful in talking to all three T2 Chicago schools in terms of scholarships. Started out looking at $5k off sticker and now am only paying $10k/yr in tuition. Just be persistent and use the schools' offers against each other.
